I maybe the only one interested in this, but hey...

The end of an era: Internet Explorer drops below 50% of Web usage (

So the "kind of" part is that Explorer is still the most used browser on desktops, but when you factor in mobile devices it loses it's edge.

I think the most interesting statistic to come out of all of this is the adoption of Chrome on the desktop since its release in 2008. That's a pretty significant share of the market in a pretty short amount of time - especially considering how long it took Firefox to slowly eat away at Explorer.

I'm glad I could play a role in this...I've been using Chrome avidly for at least 2 years now. It really is the best browser I've ever used, if they ever get rid of the occasional Flash crash, it'll be just about perfect. I've tried Firefox and Safari in the past, but, IMO, neither compare to Chrome.

I started using Chrome exclusively on my personal computer because I was tired of how resource hungry Firefox gets after being open for too long with too many tabs.

When I started my current job a little over a year ago they told me we didn't support IE6. That was cause for a mini-celebration. I think we're starting to contemplate when we will no longer support IE7. Maybe one day our children's children won't have to support IE at all! =)

Phew, that's good to hear ... but it just seems so weird to me that Verizon would advertise a feature that undercuts their business model.
